Wrexham Football Club and Calon FM are delighted to announce that Wrexham AFC’s football commentary will be live on the Wrexham based community radio station for the 2017-2018 season and beyond.
The football club has not renewed its long standing agreement with EFL Digital meaning that ‘Wrexham PlayerHD’ will close at the end of this season. We will advise current subscribers about their subscriptions shortly.
The Media Team’s commentary will be free to air next season on Calon 105fm, Calon FM’s app, the tunein app and online via the club website. We will be covering every game, home and away with our team of experienced commentators.
Carl Hogan, Wrexham Football Club Media Manager said, “I wanted to move our commentary over to Calon FM last season, but our contract with EFL Digital didn’t allow me to do so. I’m really happy to finally get this over the line, I believe our fantastic commentaries deserve a wider audience, and I believe being on the Calon platform will certainly deliver that.
“Also, I believe our commentaries should be free of charge for our supporters, which is why I have been working so hard to make this to happen. Next season will signify more choice for Wrexham commentary listeners as we go head to head in the free-to-air market. I urge all supporters to get on board with our new commentary partner Calon FM and, support our commentary sponsors and advertisers.”
On 3rd March, Black Star Riders are heading to the William Aston Hall and we have a 1 x pair of tickets to give away!

Competition closes at 3pm on Friday 27th February. Winner will be picked at random from all of the entries.
A competition to find the world’s best young singers has been flooded with entries after a pioneering care organisation teamed up with opera superstar Sir Bryn Terfel to increase the prize money to £10,000.
The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, revealed there’s been a huge surge in entries as a result of a boost to its prize fund by Pendine Park and the Bryn Terfel Foundation. The finalists will compete for the Pendine Prize and a cheque for £6,000 while the two runners up will each receive £2,000.
Arts-loving Pendine Park, who are long-term supporters of the Eisteddfod, have pledged to contribute £5,000 to the Voice of the Future competition with £3,000 coming from Sir Bryn’s foundation and £2,000 from the Eisteddfod. As a result, the total prize pot is more than six times the £1,500 awarded in previous years and the aim is to catapult the competition into a whole new league. The idea is to showcase and nurture young talent, providing each year’s winner with support and a cash injection to advance their burgeoning careers. Read the rest of this entry »
RainbowBiz Limited will be “Celebrating Volunteers With Pride” by holding a free cinema screening and Q and A event at Theatr Clwyd thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
After successfully applying to the Big Lottery Fund’s Celebrate programme RainbowBiz Limited, a social enterprise in Flintshire has been awarded £1893.00, which will be used to host an event at 6pm, Saturday, 4th March, 2017 at Theatr Clwyd in Mold.
On the day all corners of the community are invited to come together to Celebrate Volunteers With Pride. Volunteers at RainbowBiz are an important part of the local area because without volunteering many people would not be able to gain skills in new areas, feel good about themselves, be a part of the community and put on so many amazing events in Flintshire, for example Flintshire Pride, Diversity 2017 and the RainbowBiz Mind, Body, Spirit Festival.
The early bird catches the worm – or so the saying goes – and Nightingale House is urging women across North Wales and beyond to sign up and bag a discount for this year’s Ladies Midnight Walk.
The Ladies Midnight Walk will take place on June 17th and the Hospice are encouraging women to get their glitter on and get involved.
Starting from Llwyn Isaf at 10.30pm, the event sees women take on either a 3.5 or 6 mile walk while turning the streets of Wrexham into a sea of pink.
Hundreds of women many of whom will be adorned in glowing bunny ears and glitter, will be spurred on by an array of entertainment and Team Nightingale encouragement along the way.
The Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is set to celebrate its 70th anniversary milestone with a star-studded concert line up featuring performances from renowned bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel, iconic American Jazz, Soul and Gospel singer, Gregory Porter, vocal harmony group, The Overtones and the Only Boys Aloud Academi, as well as a whole host of global dance and musical talent.
Tickets for the festival, which will run from Monday 3rd July until Sunday 9th July 2017, will be available to season ticket holders and Friends of the Eisteddfod from 9am today [TUESDAY 24TH JANUARY], with tickets going on sale to the general public at 9am on Thursday 9th February online at www.international-eisteddfod.co.uk or via the box office on 01978 862001.
Anyone purchasing a membership to the Friends of the Eisteddfod during this two-week priority booking period will also gain access to advance tickets.
